Avoidable motorcycle accidents continue

There are reports that motorcycle accidents are on the rise. Sadly, this probably is not surprising to anyone. Many drivers either are inattentive to the presence of motorcycles on the road, or they fail to yield the right of way to riders.

The failure to yield is particularly noteworthy concerning left-hand turns. This leads to many fatal crashes. And following such an accident, drivers of vehicles often explain that they did not see a motorcycle approaching.

Study shows distracted driving increased in 2018

Awareness for distracted driving has been ongoing for decades now. Before text messaging became so prevalent, distracted driving awareness centered on not talking on your phone while driving. The proliferation of wearable and built-in Bluetooth devices have greatly reduced the need to hold a cell phone and talk while driving.

After all this time and new technologies aimed at curbing distracted driving, drivers must be more focused on the road than ever, right? That is not the case.
